Four tips for when you have a college professor you disagree…

If you haven’t yet, I am certain you will.It can be a bit uncomfortable when the opinion they so passionately exhort is one that you fundamentally disagree with. There’s not much stopping professors from doing this kind of thing—nor do I think there should be. While it can be uncomfortable, I think hearing ideas that differ from our own is such an important part of education and allows us to form a more well-rounded opinion.This dilemma recently led me to come up with just a few tips that can help any college student deal with opposition in the classroom, regardless of your values or political standpoint.Be open to hearing new opinions while staying true to your values.Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to hold a firm conviction while allowing someone to share their own. Hearing other ideas doesn’t by default take away the value of your stance. We should all be empowered as young people, not to push away ideas that we disagree with, but instead to invite them in and let discussion take place with others and within ourselves. It is important not to remain in an echo chamber of thought. Doing so would only allow you to be exposed to your ideas and prevent everyone from having a proper dialogue about essential subjects. As individuals who are trying to further and deepen our education, we need this dialogue.If you are truly sure of what you believe in, being taught by a professor that disagrees with you should not cause you to feel angry or offended, it should instead give you a better sense of what others think and believe.Understand that these are merely opinions and don’t have to be taken as absolute truth.Even though I strongly urge anyone to hear ideas they disagree with, I think it’s important to remember that our college professors are not all-knowing. College professors should most definitely be respected and trusted in the subject they teach considering they studied that particular subject for years. But, keep in mind that your Calculus professor does not teach you family values, your Biology professor does not teach you religion, and your English professor does not teach you politics. Sure, they can hold an opinion on such things, but just because a professor discusses these matters, doesn’t mean they’re always right. It is a dangerous thing to believe everything these people say without looking into it yourself.You do not want to be the person that gets asked “so, why do you think ___­­­­­____?” when the only answer you have is “well, my college professor said so.”That response would make as much sense as taking medical advice from your hairdresser. Use their opinion to your advantage.If you have an outspoken professor, take a cautious note of their stance, and keep it in mind when you need to write a paper. I know it sounds silly, but if you discuss topics in your research papers that your professors are passionate about, it may just catch their interest and give you a better chance of getting a higher grade. I’m sure they have had to read hundreds of college papers throughout their career; why not make their job a little more exciting by writing about something that so clearly interests them?If politics and debate are important to you, this situation can also be used to your advantage by giving you topics to find a rebuttal. There is nothing more uncomfortable than holding a firm stance in something that you cannot properly defend when asked.If you disagree with your college professor, keep what they say in mind, and go do your own research. So, the next time a similar topic comes up, you’ll be able to articulate your stance successfully.You do not have to win them over.It is crucial to remember that you are going to class to learn that subject and to work towards your degree. Sometimes when someone like a classmate or a professor disagrees with us, we feel like it’s our responsibility to tell everyone our stance and prove that we are right. While I don’t see anything wrong with standing up for your beliefs, most of the time it is just wiser to stay quiet and get your classwork done.People around us throughout our entire lives are going to disagree with us—its inevitable. Let your class experience with this situation allow you to be okay with the discomfort that comes when you are exposed to new ideas. That discomfort is what will enable you to grow and form a new perspective about the world and people around you. Please enter your comment!

Reading South Africa’s state of mind

first_imgTim CohenAt critical times in South Africa’s political unfolding, the void created by directional uncertainty has been filled with books. In a way, a brief scan of the new books on the shelves of bookshops provides a snapshot view of the current state of any nation.  I remember, in the early 1990s during South Africa’s transition period, the shelves seemed overflowing with advice, biography and opinion. The biographies, particularly of politicians, were really a kind of vicarious introduction for people who knew each other only vaguely; the new histories set the scene for the battles which would take place in the future over the negotiating table.Many of the books at that time were scenario planners of some kind or another. One popular book concerned something called the Mont Fleur Scenarios, which used a catchy bird analogy: the Ostrich pretended nothing was wrong, the Lame Duck meant negotiations would continue but unsatisfying slowly; the Icarus succeeded but flew to high too quickly and came crashing down to earth. But Flamingos take off slowly and fly high together; everyone is focused on gradualism and inclusiveness.South Africa is going through another period of political upheaval, and the changes are once again reflected in the bookshops – especially now at Christmas time as publishers and retailers hope to corner as much of the present buying trade as possible. Except, this time there are some notable differences. One of the most obvious is that there is a whole new category of books: memoirs and quasi-memoirs. Many of the old bulls of the previous era seem keen to make a stab at posterity.This charge is led by Mark Gevisser’s Thabo Mbeki: the Dream Deferred, an extraordinary book about former president Thabo Mbeki which took a mammoth nine years to research and write. The book is extraordinary not so much for what it says about Mbeki’s recent history, but more for the background and history of the Mbeki family, which is beautifully recorded with painstaking and intimate detail. All this history is oddly revealing about what would become the former president’s vaulting ambitions and curious blind spots.In this category, a book about finance minister Trevor Manuel by former journalist Pippa Green called Choice, not Fate has just been published, and several others on other leading characters of the transition are in the works.Personally, I found one of the best in this category to be Shades of Difference: Mac Maharaj and the Struggle for South Africa, which was an odd kind of joint writing project between the ostensible author Pardraig O’Malley and former underground operative and one-time transport minister Mac Maharaj. The book was so absorbing because it is focused on the life of an extraordinary character whose successes and failures provided an oblique view on South Africa’s recent history.Maharaj was nothing if not hot-headed. He actually resigned from the African National Congress (ANC) several times, only to rejoin it again to ultimately become a key negotiator and successful and practical minister. The stories of his torture and making keys for his Robben Island cell are among the most terrifying, inspiring and heart-warming of all “struggle” stories.One the other side of the aisle, former leader of the opposition Tony Leon’s autobiography On the Contrary has been the surprise hit of the latest batch of writing on South Africa’s recent past. The personalities of Leon and Mbeki are so absolutely chalk and cheese, so much so that they were totally unable to bridge their political differences, not that they tried very hard.Leon’s history as a politician was marked by moments of vigorous fury and deep sarcasm which many in the ANC interpreted as a kind of suppressed racism. Mbeki, who cherishes civility, treated Leon with outright contempt, and Leon was often criticised for contributing to this poor relationship.But his book is even-handed, thoughtful and insightful. Although his tone was almost unbearably sharp while he was in office, with the benefit of hindsight it’s obvious how often his immediate judgements in fact turned out to be correct.There are also some revealing kiss-and-tell books about government written by insiders, the leading example of which is Andrew Feinstein’s After the Party. No publishing vista would be complete without a book of scandalous revelations, but Feinstein’s book has won plaudits for the passionate defence of democracy which underlies the critique.Some of what you might call old era books are still being published, notably a wonderful book by lawyer Peter Harris called In a Different Time about an old treason trial that took place in a town called Delmas.Another book that seems a bit like a through-back to the transition era scenario books is an interesting co-authored book by former secretary general of the National Union of Mineworkers  James Motlatsi and former chief executive of gold company AngloGold Ashanti. The book is called Do It and is interesting not only because it merges the ideas of two notable characters, but also because it extends beyond big economic issues into the personal and has suggestions on how people should live their lives. Oprah beware!One big difference between the current publishing splurge and the early 1990s is the number of books that focus not on the big picture, but on sub-issues, particularly focusing on the most complex and difficult social issues. The most obvious are books on HIV/Aids, such as Three-Letter Plague by Jonny Steinberg, and crime, such as A Country at War with Itself by Antony Altbekker.This new focus on specific topics rather than generalities reflects a progression of sorts toward a greater focus on some of the more intractable issues of governance. The theoretical has become practical.Those elegant flamingos all flying in unison look less like a the most preferred scenario than like oddly coloured, strangely shaped bird-like creatures. They are generally doing what they are supposed to be doing, but sleek swallows they are not.  Yet, neither is their much evidence of ostriches and Icari either, so perhaps a page as been turned on the era of simplistic and slightly patronising scenarios.Tim Cohen is a freelance journalist writing for a variety of South African publications.

Emergence issues showing up after a wet start to May

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The nearly ideal planting conditions followed by extensive rains statewide have led to some unusual crop emergence problems for corn and soybeans in Ohio.Peter Thomison reported several instances of somewhat unusual corn emergence issues.“Often the problems were associated with corn seedlings leafing out underground and it’s likely weather and seedbed conditions were responsible for the occurrence of the abnormal growth. Seedlings exhibiting abnormal emergence may have a twisted appearance because internal leaves start expanding before the seeding has elongated. ‘Corkscrewed’ mesocotyl/coleoptile development may occur when the coleoptile encounters resistance (like soil crusting or a dense soil surface) as the mesocotyl elongates. Several factors (or combination of factors) may be responsible for this abnormal growth. These factors may be characterized as environmental, chemical, or mechanical. Environmental conditions associated with underground leafing include light penetration, cold soils, or heavy rains soon after planting. When plants unfurl below the soil surface, they usually turn yellow and die,” Thomison wrote in a recent CORN Newsletter.There can also be issues in cloddy fields with uneven sunlight warming the soil and, as was the case this spring in some fields, heavy rains can cause surface crusting and challenging corn emergence conditions. Herbicides can also cause some similar issues, Thomison said.“Certain herbicides, such as cell growth inhibitors like acetochlor, and various premixes that contain their active ingredients can show similar symptoms (i.e. twisting, abnormal growth) when excessive rates are applied pre-emergence. Besides excessive rates, improperly closed seed furrows can allow the pre-emergence herbicide to come in direct contact with the seed,” Thomison said. “Prompt treatment with a rotary hoe, weeder, spiketooth harrow or cultipacker may help break the crust and improve emergence. However, even when used carefully, these salvage operations can cause some damage to seedlings, which are emerging normally. To minimize poor seedling emergence due to unfurling below the soil surface, watch for cloddy seedbeds, open seed furrows, and crusting surface soils after rains.”Ohio State University Extension plant pathologist Anne Dorrance points out that, in many ways, the situation in early May was a perfect storm for soybean problems.“For most of these situations we have the following scenario: PPO herbicides (flumioxazin, sulfentrazone, saflufenacil) included as a component of the preplant burn down, fields planted seven days later with fungicide treated seed, followed by one to two weeks of suboptimum growing conditions between 40 to 50degrees F for two weeks, and greater than two inches of rain. These conditions are very conducive to both Pythium damping-off and PPO injury,” wrote Dorrance and Extension herbicide specialist Mark Loux in a recent CORN Newsletter. “Some of the reports from the field were with seedlings that have already croaked. Wispy skeletons of soybean seedlings could be found on or below the surface. These are most likely from Pythium, it moves fast under these conditions. Other seedlings had black at the hypocotyl hook with a reddish brown on the underside of the cotyledon. These could be PPO injury.”In some of the severe cases, it may be difficult to tell the cause of the problem.“There is still much to learn from this unusual weather pattern, but if the soybean plants are slow to get out of the ground they are exposed to the herbicide/cold temperatures for a much longer period of time. In addition, with soybeans and cold soil temperatures, they are stressed and leak nutrients — signal compounds which attract seedling pathogens. If they are stressed they may also be more vulnerable to PPO injury,” Dorrance and Loux wrote. “How to tell the difference between pathogen, flooding, and PPO injury is not going to be easy this year as all three may be present in the field at the same time.”If the plant dies from a pathogen, it will have soft tissue and consistent browning on the bottom of the seedling. With flooding injury there will be a smell from the anaerobic conditions in the field. For severe cases, there may also be algae on the soil surface and the seedlings may have gray roots on the outside with white inside the roots, Dorrance said. If the problem was PPO injury there will be necrosis on the emerging shoot, variable rate of emergence, possibly some growth distortion, and failure to emerge or plant death if severe, Loux said.No matter what the problem, the warm, sunny conditions that followed in the third week of May helped, if it was not already too late.last_img read more

JT Barrett loses summer scholarship following drunkdriving citation

Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorWhen Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett was cited early Saturday morning for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, he not only lost his starting spot for at least one game, but he also might have lost thousands of dollars.OSU coach Urban Meyer announced on Monday that in addition to a one-game suspension that Barrett will serve during Saturday’s home game against Minnesota, the Wichita Falls, Texas, native also had a scholarship taken away as punishment for the citation. “When a kid has an issue like that, there’s some type of punitive damage as far as missing a game or something, and then they forfeit their scholarship at some point,” Meyer said, adding that the scholarship revokement was something he has done in the past.The scholarship was later confirmed by an OSU spokesman to be Barrett’s summer aid — compensation given by OSU to athletes who are taking six or more academic credit hours during the summer term.The spokesman added that the team holds workouts over the summer, and players are required to take at least six credit hours to attend. The summer aid also covers housing and living expenses.According to OSU’s website, the out-of-state tuition rate for six credit hours in the Summer 2015 term was $6,676.10 for Barrett’s communication major, and that does not include the other cost-of-living expenses..Meyer confirmed that the suspension was not mandatory under OSU’s drug-and-alcohol policy, but the coach handed it down himself. He also said Barrett will undergo counseling through the university.Meyer said another punishment is still under consideration for the redshirt sophomore: the forfeiture of his team captaincy.“You know, I visited with some older players about that, my initial reaction was he might and let me just talk to some guys,” Meyer said. “But it was very strong with the leadership on the team to (not take it away). I’m still in my own mind going through that. And as of now, no.”Co-captain and senior left tackle Taylor Decker said Barrett had handled everything as he should since the citation, but he doesn’t know what the decision will ultimately be on the captaincy.“He took the responsibility,” Decker said. “He actually called me Sunday because he just wanted to explain to me what happened himself. I thought that was a really mature move by him.”Decker added that it is hard to believe that Barrett would be the one to get in trouble after witnessing his character for three years.“We haven’t really had a ton of issues on this team, and then in the bye week I thought we made it clear that we shouldn’t have any, and then for it to happen from a guy like him, I think (stunned) is a perfect word for it,” Decker said.Meyer said he initially learned about the incident from a 6 a.m. text message. He was so surprised by the news that he immediately called the person who texted him to confirm that he was reading it correctly.Barrett then visited Meyer’s house later on Saturday to talk to him in person about the situation. Meyer said he told the quarterback that he will now have to deal with something he never has before: a damaged reputation.“When they say, you’re too short, you don’t run fast enough, your arm strength isn’t good enough, you’re just an average quarterback, you can deal with that. You just outwork it,” Meyer said. “When they start attacking who you are, especially people who don’t know who you are, and I told him, that’s the toughest thing he’ll ever have to deal with is that now there’s some question as to who you are.”Meyer said Barrett drove to pick someone up to give him or her a ride home. The quarterback told his coach that he did not believe he was over the legal blood alcohol content limit of 0.08 percent to drive a motor vehicle, though the limit is 0.02 percent for an underage individual like the 20-year-old Barrett.As for the game against Minnesota, Meyer officially announced on Monday that it will be redshirt junior Cardale Jones getting the start at quarterback. Jones had started 10 consecutive games going back to last season’s Big Ten Championship Game before being pulled in favor of Barrett in OSU’s Week 8 game at Rutgers.Beyond Minnesota, Meyer said he hasn’t given the identity of the starting quarterback too much thought.“If he’s good enough and if he’s earns that right (he will start again),” Meyer said about Barrett. “I haven’t even gone that far yet.”The Buckeyes, with Jones returning to the starting quarterback spot, are set to take on Minnesota on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. at Ohio Stadium. read more

Barclay Pettrey split kicking duties

The story of Devin Barclay’s 2009 season was immortalized when he made the winning field goal in overtime against Iowa to make the Buckeyes the outright Big Ten champions. But the walk-on and former soccer player once again shared the spotlight with starting kicker Aaron Pettrey at the Rose Bowl Game.Barclay took over the season after Pettrey went out with a knee injury against New Mexico State on Oct. 31 that required surgery.The second-string kicker had a rough start, missing a field goal in the second half of Ohio State’s 45-0 win over the Aggies. However, he quickly recovered and became a solid contributor to the Buckeye special teams unit.When Pettrey was deemed healthy enough to play in his final game as a Buckeye, coach Jim Tressel decided to give him the chance while still rewarding Barclay for his regular season performance.“It was two days ago that he told me we were going to be sharing kicks,” Barclay said of getting the news from Tressel. “He was going to be taking extra points and field goals outside of 42 yards.”True to the plan, Barclay kicked and made three field goals from 19, 30 and 38 yards out, while Pettrey made a field goal from 45 yards in the second quarter to put the Buckeyes up 16-10. Barclay also kicked all six kickoffs.Though Barclay said that it was unfortunate that Pettrey was injured, he said he has benefited from stepping in while Pettrey was out.“It’s definitely a great opportunity to get some confidence for next year,” Barclay said of when he will likely step into the full-time starting spot. “I can take this and look back on some of the things I need to work on.”Barclay also echoed many of his teammates when he said that playing in front of over 93,000 people was an experience unlike any other.“When you get that kind of win and you actually get to be a part of the win, it holds its own,” Barclay said. “I’m just very glad that [Pettrey] and I got to play together in the Rose Bowl.”Pettrey, who is a senior, is set to play in an All-Star game in February, Tressel said, and is targeting a path to the NFL. read more
